Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Scrappy Mo's Christmas Challenge, Snippets, Friday Smiles + Blog Continued Recess

Hi there everyone,well amazingly we are into Rudolph Day again, at Scrappy Mo’s from 25th to 31st July!
 Here is my ultra quick upcycle!
A card from 2019, cut up a little, mounted several times in kraft and silver, silver ribbon and verse added and hey presto new card for 2020 collection!
I love the verse printed below:
“the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world”. 
1 John 4:14
This card is all snippets, including the verse, so hopping over to the Snippets playground to join in also, please save me the swings... the slow ones!!
Also sharing some Aussie pickies:
Beaches, surfers, kookaburra in our garden and sunsets.
Mr "Kooka" was on the hunt for worms ๐Ÿ˜Š.. he had two juicy big ones and I told him that's enough! .. garden are roses x 36, lass from down road helping.
.. that's a surfer cutting through the wave below with his board... and another to right. We have had some big seas.
As it's Friday and these make me smile, Im linking up too with Annie's Friday smiles.
Many thanks for popping over for peek and chat I will endeavour to return visits. However, I'm continuing the break from blogging as full recovery a way to go. Full update below. 
Love and prayers for all of you, especially if you've struggles in your lives.
I pray with you all in all your burdens,
prayer hugs,
Shaz in Oz. X
PS I noticed that blogger has changed over and Heritage which I'm using is only available till 24th Aug.
That's bad. I may not be able to blog much after that time.
Unless its corrected and workable on mobile devices??
My previous attempts were a miserable fail.


Health update:
I'm getting better with the two steps fwd one step back routine ๐Ÿ™„
For two weeks had painful cellulitis on left hand, this week much better in God's time. 
Saw Cardiologist and had echocardiogram, yesterday.
Good news is heart irregularities from Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy have (as hoped and prayed) corrected itself.
God is very merciful.
From where I was 4 weeks ago when I'd doubted recovery to now, I'm very grateful.
God is good, all the time!
Its really a testament to answered prayers.
This verse is what I live by each day.
As a result of my health, I've long lived with an attitude I may go to be with the Lord in any given day... and so truly my times are in THY hands.

Shaz ill - Blog in Recess. "..as for God His way is PERFECT ". Ps 18

Linking up also to Butterfly Challenge, + WOYWW.
 As of Fri 26th June life took another health turn.
I don't know the way, but God does.
I do know I must rest,  though, so all prayers appreciated,  especially that my other chronic conditions will behave. ๐Ÿ˜Š  Here is new health condition (heart attack, with heart failure, hopefully recoverable) - See link.
Just sharing some cards for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge -  entering Mrs A, but not for marvellous prizes, thank you! 
Used loads of snippets... also joining there for fun only, Miss thanks. 
Number of cards for special friend's family.. last Fri 26th.
May God bless you all, and may you seek the One Lord God alone Who carries us through every dark valley..
Who not only saves us by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ from our sin and our sin's consequences,  but oh, He is with us in the hardest and longest days.
He holds my hand.

Commenting prob not at all, but praying for you all yes, which is far better.
Loving Prayer Hugs,
Shaz in Oz.x
He promised to NEVER to leave me, to NEVER to leave me alone ... beautiful indeed!
